Definitely a worthwhile buy!! This album blends indie-rock backings with synthesizers and acoustic melodies and harmonies to get the result of a perfect album. The opening song, Pompeii, is now a hit on many various music stations, but the whole album is just as good, if better, than Pompeii. Many of the songs also have intricate meanings (Daniel in the Den is about the Bible story, and Icarus is about the Greek Myth, for example). Dan Smith's vocals have a rustic, raw quality that make this album a shining star. If you're even thinking about buying the album, do so and enter the kingdom of Stormers (the name of Bastille fans)! You'll never regret it!
